I am happy that the Dr removed has removed the tumor out Of my loved one’s head, but the fact that we had to wait for two weeks because we were not told about the results of that Pathology results. This was u professional and irresponsible on his part. I do not recommend this doctor because of the lack of communication.

Dr. Rughani performed a partial temporal lobectomy for a brain tumor my son had at the beginning of October 2016. This is the most competent, caring, reassuring surgeon I've ever seen and I've worked in healthcare for 20 years. He did an amazing job with the surgery, leaving my son with absolutely no neurological deficits. He also went above & beyond with taking his time with my son and I, we never felt rushed before & after the surgery. We always felt we were important & he was there for us.

I crushed a lumbar vertebra due to a fall and was taken as a Trauma Level 2 patient to MMC by ambulance from Rockport. Luck was on my side when Dr. Rughani was available to perform an emergency spinal fusion. His personal attention, world-class surgical skills, willingness to explain everything going on, and friendly demeanor all added up to a very fast recovery, pain-free within two weeks, and return to running in 5K races. If you have the luxury to pick a doc, pick him. Plus, super staff!

Update: Now that i have completed surgery I want to say that my initial evaluation still holds. He continued to answer my questions thoroughly. At the time of surgery he made me as comfortable as possible and what could have been a frightening surgery was actually interesting.I would highly recommend him to anyone.
